A citizen-run nonprofit organization, like Valley Crime Stoppers, is truly a group of caring people who come together and donate their time and experience to be a part of making our communities safer. The Valley Crime Stopper Board of Directors and Staff are extremely grateful for the generosity and support of our sponsors. You have trusted and supported the mission of Valley Crime Stoppers and with your continued support, we have been hard at work to help make Fresno and the surrounding communities a much safer place to live.
Our focus continues to be on “getting the bad guys,” but we are having to find more creative ways to do that.
WITH YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT, WE HAVE BEEN HARD AT WORK TO HELP MAKE FRESNO AND THE SURROUNDING COMMUNITIES A MUCH SAFER PLACE TO LIVE
We have recently updated our website to make it easier for the public to use, as well as allowing the public to view crime trends in the area. We are also out educating the public about our program at community events, including the Fresno and Madera Fairs, as well as Fresno State’s Vintage Days. We continue to work to inform the public that every tip reported is completely anonymous. Without the invaluable help of our media partners: KSEE 24, KGPE 47, Cumulus Media, Univision Radio, The Fresno Bee, many outlying local newspapers and Jeffrey Scott Agency, this would not be possible.
We are in the process of working to get more involvement from the students and the school districts in getting the message out that students can also be a part of making our valley and our schools a safer place to be. Campus Crime Stoppers will premiere in 2016. We will be working with as many schools as we possibly can to help get the word out about reporting crime anonymously. We continue to work toward the goal of making the school programs a strong part of our mission. The ultimate goal is to educate students on how they can utilize the Campus Crime Stoppers Text ability to anonymously report dangerous activity including bullying, drugs and vandalism that takes place on campus or in their neighborhoods.
As we look toward 2016, a big focus will be working closely with our local law enforcement and being a more effective tool for solving crimes and catching bad guys. On behalf of The Valley Crime Stoppers Board of Directors we would like to say, “Thank you.” Thank you for believing in us and our mission, and for enabling us to assist local law enforcement in making a difference in our community.
